Worth It

A few weeks ago I came across this Blog Post or Article on Fb, I can't seem to find it again. But it really burned something into my brain that has had such a positive affect on me. There was one specific quote that I like to say to myself almost everyday single day. I don't know the exact wording but it went something like:

"The hardest things in life will be the most rewarding"

To me, this said that all of the hardest things that we are experiencing are going to bring us the most Joy. Im pretty sure the article was about kids. But for me it was so much more than that. It definitely made me think better about my life and about my kids and husband.

Raising children can be HARD
Going to School can be HARD
Applying for Dental school can be HARD
Getting healthy and working out can be HARD

There are some days that I just need a day without the kids. But then there are days where I just can't wait for them to wake up because Im so excited to see them.

There were days when I wouldn't see my husband all day long, sometimes even the night because he would be working so hard in school and it absolutely drained him.

We didn't get into Dental school the first round we applied, but we tried again and worked harder on all the applications.

These are hard things. But they are worth it.

And today, all of Maikals hard work is already starting to become worth it. Tonight, Maikal will be on a Plane going to his very first Dental School Interview!! We have prayed and prayed for this blessing to come over our home and we are beyond grateful to have this opportunity! Applications opened in June and Maikal was one of the first to apply. He has been preparing for weeks for this interview and I think he's going to nail it!

Of course the real Joy will come if we do get an acceptance. But right now we are just grateful for this little opening of hope for our future. I am so proud of my babe and all of the sacrifices he has done so far!
